For example, go to chromium.com and test it out: the actual google site is chromium.org, so don't be on the wrong track...
I think "Privacy risk" is better, and instead of an "x" on top of the folded :page_facing_up:, there should be a red warning sign on top of the folded paper. The x is only supposed to be for unloadable sites IMO.

Wait what??? Chromimum.com redirects to solomo something.com.
Strange, edge should be able to tell if a url is redirecting somewhere esle.
Nope, when I go to "http://chromimum.com/", the browser throws "ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED" Errors.
but the browser can't intervene if the web server is designed by the site developer to use a 301 redirect.

@Shawn1710IDK, that happens to me sometimes. Weird. One day it shows "Privacy error" and the other it redirects to solomoxxxx.com.
anyone can own any available domain, then redirect it to other domains.
Chromium's (the browser) website is https://www.chromium.org/
Solomo owns www.chromium.com , an entirely different domain, no privacy risk or anything.
if Google was worried, they could do what Microsoft does and buy similar domains, but they didn't.
Edge or other browsers can't show random security/privacy errors on people's websites just because their domain is similar to other domains. that's awful.

so here is the answer to your post:
Chromium's (browser) website is this: https://www.chromium.org/
this domain belongs to someone else, not Google: www.chromium.com (notice there is no https)
the error only appears when you type "https://" before "www.chromium.com"
and that is wrong. then the browser checks the certificate and gives you a certificate error. it has nothing to do with privacy.
and that's why you get a certificate error.
